Sheila,

Thanks for asking. I have considered and did accept the nomination. I am committed to the work being done in SMTE as well as WMEA.  Possible agenda items for me as chair: continue to develop the yearly dialogues at the state music conference, of course; communicate the SMTE goals and initiatives; determine areas of advocacy that may need position statements from WSMTE in light of budget reductions, pursue ways to make WSMTE even more accessible to new colleagues in the state (it sure was helpful to me at that time); continue to develop awareness of the benefits and drawbacks of alternative licensure scenarios we have available; maintain and improve electronic communication for the group; or anything else the group wishes to pursue.

Hello, Everyone,

I hope you are having an enjoyable summer! I am nominating Dr. Ken Liske for our 2-year position as chair of our organization. Ken has been a leader for WMEA in this state and has always been actively involved in the WSMTE, attending all our meetings and contributing valuable ideas, suggestions and expert information to the betterment of our organization and those we serve.



There have been no other nominations so I propose we elect him by acclamation.



Please reply with your vote!



Thank you so very much,

Vanissa

Hello, everyone,

I hope you are beginning to enjoy the onslaught of summer! I have three items of ‘business’ to ask you about and look forward to your reply.



First, there is a doctoral student who many of you may have already heard from, who could benefit from our assistance in order to complete data collection for dissertation purposes. I will be forwarding you an email from him, and, if you are so inclined, could you forward the survey to your MUED students who might help?



Second, we need to select a new chair for our WSMTE. Please send me your nominations and I will get you a way to vote! The selected person will also become the College and University representative on the WMEA Council. I have served two terms and that is our limit. Plus, our department has selected me as their new chair so I will be busy with those responsibilities!



Third, I believe that we are set to welcome Carlos Abril as our guest facilitator during our workshop/reception during WMEA Conference!



I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes for a fabulous summer,

Vanissa
